Greta's Tale

Here are some lovely stories of how life used to be on Natland Mill Beck Lane during the war, when Greta and her cousin June stayed as evacuees with Olive Williams. It's full of suggestions of things for people to do - bows and arrows with bows made from elder shoots, hopscotch, searching out wildflowers, marbles, ball games. Many aren't available now. The carthorses and pigs are no longer there to play among. 'Auntie always came because she loved a walk', and that is something we can all still do at least. Read the full accounts here.
